Remember when I speculated that green lampshades might be the new red lampshades? I really meant that both are super-classic (in fact I'm the proud owner of two red drum shades) but verdant shades had been catching my eye. Well, green grabbed my attention again this week as I looked at Sara Tuttle's online portfolio. Based in Washington, D.C. and named one of Domino's "Ten to Watch," Sara is known for her lovely color sense.
Regarding these lampshades, she describes them as kelly-green. She told me, "I love the color and think it is so lively, calming and fresh. The shades add a lot of of whimsy to this small little space and every time you walk into the room, the unexpected pop of color makes you smile."
Sara found lamps with the painted metal shades at Stray Dog Designs and opted to mix the bold green on a different lamp base.
By the way, her new site just launched, so be sure to enjoy browsing her entire portfolio.
